About the Summit

The Algae Biofuels World Summit will be the first major event where all the communities in the algae biofuels value chain come together to discuss how to build a new algae biofuels industry. Unlike scientific research-oriented events, the goal of the Summit is to provide a forum where the algae community can discuss and learn how to build the links within the value chain that are necessary to make the algae biofuels industry a reality.

No single community will be able to create an algae biofuels industry. Only through intense cooperative efforts will this be possible. This means that all the communities in the value chain will need to obtain a detailed understanding of the capabilities, challenges and needs of the other parts in the value chain in order for the industry to move forward.

Power plant operators, industrial carbon generators, algae technology developers, algae equipment suppliers, algae project developers, biofuels refiners, financiers, carbon market players, oil companies, airlines, aircraft and engine manufacturers will be on hand to share their perspectives on what is needed to build a truly viable algae biofuels industry.

The Summit will provide a unique setting to outline the key technical, organizational, economic and financial challenges faced by this nascent industry and to identify the types of relationships that must to be established in order to truly support each role in the value chain.
